STANLEY, Idaho — Several earthquakes hit near Stanley in Central Idaho Thursday night and into Friday morning, the latest series of quakes to rattle the area.

According to the USGS, a 2.7-magnitude earthquake struck the area at 7:48 p.m. Thursday, followed about ten minutes later by a 2.6-magnitude quake. A stronger 4.3-magnitude earthquake hit at 3:54 a.m., then a 2.5 at 4:55 a.m.

KTVB has not received any reports of damage. The area where the earthquakes happened is about 14 miles northwest of Stanley in the mountains. 

That region has been the site of several thousand earthquakes, most of them very small, since a 6.5-magnitude quake hit Idaho on March 31, 2020, sending out shocks that rattled Boise and could be felt in several nearby states. The March earthquake was the second-largest in state history.
